Carlsson’s newest program for the Mercedes ML-Class will make its world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

Known for some of the best aftermarket Mercedes programs in the world, Carlsson is looking to set the standard for SUV refinement for 2012. For the program, Carlsson has prepared quite the treat for ML-Class owners. There’s an aero package that add bolds styling to the SUV and there’s a performance enhancement that adds more power than you can imagine.

For the aerodynamic kit, Carlsson took the wind tunnel to develop all of the parts, ensuring up-standard quality and engineering. A new front apron was installed, giving the SUV a more masculine look. Grille inserts made of electro polished stainless steel mesh were also added to the chrome radiator grille and the central air inlet. On the side, Carlsson installed new side skirts whereas the rear end gets a new rear apron and the addition of a new stainless steel, double flow rear exhaust resonator. Rounding off the exterior modifications are a new set of 20" Carlsson 1/5 Revo light alloy wheels. Inside, Carlsson went to great lengths to enhance the ML-Class’ amenities. Illuminated door panels have been fitted in, Carlsson door pins were added, and finally, aluminum pedals were included.

For the engine, Carlsson tweaked the ML 350’s C-Tronic control unit, resulting in an increased output on the SUV’s 3.0-liter V6 engine, from 258 horsepower to and 457 lb/ft of torque to an impressive 310 ponies and 516 lb/ft of torque.

The last piece of modification for the ML CD35 involves the installation of Carlsson’s C-Tronic SUSPENSION with iPhone connectivity. Using a simple app from Carlsson, drivers can configure the system to adjust the vehicle height by 30mm to the road conditions within milliseconds, ensuring superior ride comfort for the driver and the passengers alike.

Tons of modifications are held with Hamann, and all of it were just as good as the majority wants. And that is why companies call for their help to improve cars.

It seems like this borders from sporty to luxury, but not techie. However, its internal will prove it otherwise as it features such high-tech components.

Carlsson’s tuning was good on its engine, but I wish they redesigned its exterior to make its innovative quality more apparent. It’s only evident on the inside, once you’ve noticed its high-tech features and equipments.

Carlsson’s tuning is only appropriate; it’s neither too impressive, nor beyond disappointing. The amount of ponies it can exert is parallel as to how fast it can perform.

I’m not impressed by the tuning, but I think it will astound me once I see it running.

Carlsson is one ingenious automotive tuning company when it comes to styling, performance, and technology. They have equipped this Mercedes car’s interior with some astounding features.

I used to judge a car’s performance according to the stated figures, but once I saw one actually perform, I came to know that I’ve been wrong. That is why I think this ML CD35 tuned by Carlsson will stun me, although I see that its HP is not even one of the highest.

It doesn’t look like it possess an aerodynamic kit, whoa. Special features like this astound me, and internally it has extra innovative technology.

Wow, its internal package is awesome. Moreover, it has iPhone connectivity. This doesn’t look like something pompous with technology at all, but it is subtly innovative.

For vehicles like this, they need to be more powerful but in terms of speed, it’s not really necessary to be super fast; that’s why I think the horsepower it has is good enough.
